The Cannonball S5-L is part of their Stone Series professional range. With two necks, specially treated brass for a rich, resonant sound - it is an ideal Soprano for someone wanting an upgrade, or for a proficient Alto/Tenor player wanting to add Soprano to their arsenal.
Designed in Utah the Cannonball Stone Series instruments are a blend of modern manufacturing and fresh ideas combined with nods to great vintage horns of years gone by. We find the Canonballs give a really big sound, especially compared to some Japanese counterparts, and on the Soprano this presents itself as a solidity and richness which gives the player a security of tone. Soprano can feel quite thin and harsh but no chance with the Cannonball thanks to the gauge of brass and how it is treated they really resonate deeply with a weight of projection.
This particular example is in good aesthetic condition and has been well maintained. The lacquer is all in great order as are the precious stone touch pieces - an aesthetic addition that also adds a little weight to the core of the instrument. The layout on these is comfortable and everything is within reach for all hand sizes. The tuning scale is very reliable and as mentioned above their is a density of tone that is missing on many Sopranos.
The instrument is supplied in its original hard case which is also in nice condition. Like all our second hand Saxophones it has been fully checked, set-up and tested in our woodwind workshops before sale by one of our experienced technicians.
